FIRE. THE. TRAINING. STAFF. NOW!!!!!
Left oblique injury. From SWINGING THE BAT AT THE PLATE.
Gee, good thing he doesn’t have to do that every game, huh?
He’s off to an MRI, and then to the injured list, along with practically the rest of the starting lineup.
And just to reassure us that this crap will continue, the Yankee announcers kept pushing their PR BS on how the Yankee Organization and the Steinbrenners would most CERTAINLY make sure the training regimens were state-of-the-art top-of-the-line bla bla bla so on and so forth.
Yeah, guys. It’s just bad luck. Bad luck over and over and over again with every player in the roster. Injuries resulting not from collisions or running into the wall, or getting beaned on a bone, but from SWINGING THE BAT, RUNNING INTO BASES or PITCHING BASEBALLS.
YOU STUPID BRAIN-DEAD PR FLACK SUCKUP MORONS.
Oh, and Aaron Boone still sucks as manager and also ought to be fired. The Red Sox being worse doesn’t excuse him either.
Ah yes, the Steinbrenners and the vaunted Yankee organization… they’d NEVER spend their enormous amounts of money on garbage would they? That certainly never happened with any of several dozen free agents over the years, huh?
Here’s a story: My dad had a longtime friend who made decent dough, and spent a lot of it on a spiffy new Jaguar luxury car. I certainly never got to see this car and I’m not sure my dad ever did either, since it was ALWAYS in the shop for repairs.
You know what you do when you have money and get stuck with a car like that, despite it’s impressive brand?
YOU BUY A DIFFERENT GOD DAMNED CAR.
